Sno-Park Reopens

Sun., Nov. 19, 1995, midnight

Winter recreation

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission has purchased 80 acres at Snoqualmie Pass to create the state’s largest official parking area for cross-country skiers and snowmobilers.

The property, known as the Crystal Springs Rock Pit, had been leased and operated as a winter parking area for five years. A change of ownership forced closure of the area last year, cutting off access to 42,000 winter users.<

The state purchased the land for $96,000 and is phasing in development. The Sno-Park is off Interstate 90 at exit 62.
